We were so pleasantly surprised that the food was this good. Very flavorful. The jerk chicken is definitely the dish to try. We will visit again on our next trip to Tampa.

The ginger beer is cold, the rum punch is strong and the buffet is awesome. Get there early they tend to run out of goat closer to 3 when the buffet is closing. Service is good, ambiance is legit
